quester. certainly a reconciliation after the fact that the u.s. is spending so much more than it brings in. i think one of the interesting things, just around rates, bullard yesterday, for example, said that he expects 3% real growth this year. so 3% real growth and 2% inflation, that gets me to march like a 5% ten-year. we're nowhere close to that. lloyd blankfein was on ur yo showing saying investors, if there is some sort of ex oh dus into stocks, and that's becoming a story -- >> and lloyd has been talking about just the potential for a stock market boom, too. >> dean, the name of your firm is macro, right? >> yes. >> so you're used to looking macro? >> yes. >> but typically, three were four, five years ago, isn't your first thing that you talk about, you mentioned washington, the sequester, the debt ceiling, every single thing you mentioned was policymakers. has it always been like that or is this a different period for your firm? >> this is i think pretty new. >> so it's hard to avoid talking about those things, right? >> that you have to pay attention to central banks, of course,

posting a fifth straight week of gains. u.s. equity futures this morning, you can see, are lighter, down by about 33 points for those dow futures. s&p futures are off by about 4 1/2. but, again, the dow above 14,000 for the first time since october 2007 on friday. oil analysts are saying that trading could be choppy in the energy markets today amid growing tensions in the middle east. yesterday, israel hinted that its air force may have been behind the air strike. on a missile site in syria in order tody stroi weapons it believes were headed for lebanon. you can see right now, crude oil prices down by about 11%. 96.85. and, steve, i'll send it over to you. >> we'll talk to boeing about compensation for the grounding of the dreamliner. it estimates it will cost nearly $8el million through tend of march. barclay's finance director chris lucas and the bank's top legal expert are set to retire. the departures add to change at the top as the financial giant struggles to put disasters behind it. resimple in moment will officially become blackberry today. the rim name doesn't completely disappe
